Kawasaki has announced new colours for some of its motorcycles. As a part of the 2023 series, the Japanese motorcycle maker has introduced new colours for Z900, Z650, Ninja 1000SX and Vulcan. All of the new additions will most likely arrive in the Indian market by the end of this year. With the new colours, we could also see a marginal increase in the prices.
Detailed Info On New Colour Schemes
The brand’s highest-selling motorcycle – the Z900, is now available in three new colour combinations. This includes Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Graphite Grey/Metallic Flat Spark Black, Metallic Phantom Silver/Metallic Carbon Grey and Ebony/Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Grey. Kawasaki also sells a top-spec Z900 SE variant, which comes with the Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Grey/Candy Lime Green colours.
For the Z650RS as well, Kawasaki has updated the colour palette. The colour choice includes the Metallic Spark Black. These colour shades will enhance the outlook and also give a fresh look to the motorcycle. The Ninja 1000SX and the Vulcan also have new colours to boost about. The cruiser motorcycle gets Metallic Matte Carbon Grey/Ebony with new graphics. Meanwhile, the sports tourer gets Metallic Matte Sovereign Red/Metallic Diablo Black/Metallic Matte Carbon Grey.
Kawasaki’s Progress In The EV Segment
Kawasaki has been working on an electric and hybrid range of motorcycles for quite some time now. In the latest Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance race, the company revealed two prototypes. There’s this Ninja HEV (hybrid) in the works. As per the images, the Ninja HEV will use a parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine. Other cues we see are dual front discs, telescopic forks, a mono-shock and a swingarm that seems longer than usual.
The second is the Z EV, which is a pure electric motorcycle. It most likely will get a centrally mounted motor with chain drive and a diagonally mounted battery. We see the motorcycle using the Z250’s bodywork. Thus, this could be a 200cc ICE motorcycle equivalent.
